Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Hear Hear to that. Bali is a dump anyway. I can’t understand why anyone would want to go there.
    Overpriced and overrated and full of people who hate us.
    Yes Boycott Bali, and Indonesia as a whole
    And the PM should recall our Ambassador as well

  2. Boycotting Bali will only hurt the Balinese. I don’t support this action as a tit for tat. I am also opposed to the executions but I think there are better ways to respond to this (if it happens…let’s hope there’s a reprieve), by actively supporting attempts to convince countries like Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, China and the US that the death penalty is simply abhorrent. Boycotting Bali will achieve nothing.

  3. Yes Bali is part of Indonesia. They take Aussie’s money & killed Aussies in Bali bombing. Their President is too deaf to listen to our appeals.

    Boycott Bali so long as it remains with Indonesia. If Bali follows the way of East Timor, it will be different.

  4. I have boycotted all death penalty countries for more than 10 years. The Indonesian government is a disgrace for murdering all these young people. This is revenge killing. I despise all who do it #boycottBali

  5. This country happily accept disaster aid from Australia and when we ask for a favour for free they shunn us away! YES, boycott Bali!!! Keep our tourism safe from corruption.

  6. I agree that we should boycott Indonesia. I would never travel there as I don’t feel safe. After they bombed Australians in Bali and now the executions, I see no reason to visit Indonesia.

  7. Yeah, been many times but no more it is Shithole better going to Europe, costs a little more but what a time, Spain Turkey, uk Greece more in touch with Australians and a good time
